    Default How did you choose your mattress?

    Ideas please, I have no idea....
    Do I go with soft? Hard? Firm?
    For both child & adults.

    Brands? Stores?

    Thank you

    We went to the stores (In our case snooze and 40 winks) and literally tried the mattresses. We laid on them for a while, sat on them and then went with what felt comfortable.

    Kids I think is a bit easier because there isn't quite the range?

    As for the kids.....it will be a normal bed not kids bed. So I'm thinking firm?
    We have a few stores here....dreamland, forty winks, Harvey Norman, and a few more in the same area.

    We just bought our 4yr old a new bed. Picking a mattress for him was quite easy. I just wanted a mid price range, firm but still comfortable (as no doubt I'll be in and out of it too!) and good support. We bought one for $259. We checked out Harvey Norman and a smaller local store before finding an outlet. The mattress will last him until he is a teenager. We will update then based more on his specific needs, size etc.
    While we were picking ds's mattress I bounced from one mattress to another. I found my dream! Plus a frame! We have been looking for over 12mths! Typical though I suppose.....always the last place you look! Definitely suggest shopping around. Lay on everything. If you are a tummy sleeper, lay on your tummy. Side sleeper, lay on your side etc. If you really want to get comfy, take your pillow! All advice I was given by stores on our new bed journey. Good luck x

    Just to confirm, I didn't go in to the bigger stores and find a mattress I wanted for D's then buy it elsewhere cheaper. It just so happened that the one I liked was at an outlet and $200 cheaper than the others I had found

    We got new mattresses for the kids a month or so ago.
    They both have queen beds so we went to Harvey Norman and tried them all out. Lay on them, sat on them, lay again.
    We went with a medium pillow top. They were $1199 down to $650 in the EOFY sales.
    They are so comfortable we are thinking of getting the same for our bed.
